The new season of A/W is here - well in the shops a least.
Say goodbye to some of your summer staples and invest in a new dress for September. Although somethings we found were far too hot for this weather (no one wants to wear wool in 40 degree heat), we did find some lovely silk and cotton dresses in Zara, Toyshops and Cos. Mums Like Us particularly love this from Zara.
Take a morning to yourself and get pampered with an express facial, neck & shoulder massage, express mani/pedi and blow dry.
